Extremely important, but often overlooked, is protecting your documents, photos, contacts, etc with proper backups. Make sure you try restoring a recently backed up file on a regular basis to ensure the backup is working.
Backup your entire network or just 1 machine.
Protect your Documents and Photos by syncronizing to the cloud. Syncronize your data, contacts and calendar between multiple computers and mobile devices. The difference between syncronization and backup is that if you delete a file, syncronization also deletes it (usually to a recycle bin), backup keeps the deleted file.
